Explore the latest in corneal disorders, including recent advances in corneal imaging and management of dystrophies and other keratopathies.
This cohort study examines factors associated with endothelial cell loss after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty in participants with Fuchs dystrophy or pseudophakic/aphakic corneal edema.
A 4-week-old male infant diagnosed with Peters anomaly type I underwent iridectomy. After the iridectomy, his corneal opacity precluded an accurate assessment of the anterior chamber depth and stability. What would you do next?
This case-control study characterizes the irregular morphological features of the cornea in patients with Down syndrome and compares them with a control group using corneal topography.
This Viewpoint explains the possibility of clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) gene editing becoming a means of treating Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy.
An adolescent boy presents with posterior embryotoxon, corectopia, and cerebellar dysgenesis. What would you do next?
In this narrative medicine essay, an opthalmalogist recounts the unexpected results of a cataract removal from a patient who had been blind since she was a teenager following a severe infection that had permanently scarred her corneas.
This national UK transplant registry study examines the corneal transplant replacement survival rates for the 3 main indications and types of regraft surgery.
This study investigates the role of guttae in the pathogenesis of Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy by examining their association with corneal endothelial cell function.
An 11-day-old girl presented with conjunctival hyperemia or vasodilation of the right eye and a central corneal ulcer; 2 days later, the right eye developed a hypopyon, which worsened the following day. What would you do next?
A man in his 30s presented with bilateral blurry vision a week after starting prednisone therapy for a presumed seronegative spondyloarthropathy. What would you do next?
This case report describes a man in his early 50s with chronic left dacryocystitis who presented with decreased vision in the left eye.
This randomized crossover trial compares the discriminative ability of an automated noninvasive keratograph corneal topographer technique vs the fluorescein method to detect dry eye.
An 11-year-old boy diagnosed as having eczema and multiple food allergies presented with an 8-month history of progressive visions loss, night blindness, light sensitivity, and dry eyes. On examination, his conjunctiva had dry, keratinized patches with foamy appearance, and his cornea showed areas of marked epitheliopathy with opacity. What is your diagnosis?
This study examines changes in practice patterns for fungal keratitis.
This randomized clinical trial evaluates the preservation time of the donor cornea after Descemet stripping automated endothelial keratoplasty.
This randomized noninferiority clinical trial examines whether the 3-year rate of graft success using corneal donor tissue preserved 8 to 14 days is noninferior to that of donor tissue preserved 7 days or less.
This study of cross-sectional surveys administered in 2015 and 2016 determines the prevalence of trachoma among 4 districts in Nepal that each had surveillance intervals of 2, 4, 8, and 10 years after cessation of mass drug administration.
